The coach of Australia’s women’s quadruple sculls, Tom Westgarth, is looking forward to seeing his crew take to the water in the coming days when the Olympic regatta begins on day one (August 6) in Rio de Janeiro.
Australian athletes have been training for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games for years. This week the dream becomes reality, the countdown ends and the competition begins.
With less than 10 days until the Opening Ceremony in Rio the Australian athletes have started arriving from all around the world. Some are competing, at training camps or just touching down.
